Spicy Cheese Guide
We want to make things easy for our spicy cheese lovers with our new Guide to Spicy Cheeses! The more peppers, the hotter the cheese! Pepper types and their spicy heat units are measured via the Scoville scale.
Please note, even the most mild of the spicy cheese offers a little bit of heat.
Nasonville Scorpion Cheddar Cheese (Wisconsin)
Hot, hot, hot! With a Scoville Heat Scale of 500,000 plus units, Nasonville’s Scorpion Cheddar is sure to make you search for a glass of milk for relief, but that’s just what some people like–adventure in eating. For those who like extreme bold and want an experience to remember.
Laack Ghost Chili Pepper Jack (Wisconsin)
Just a step down from the scorpion, the ghost chili pepper is still hot-hot-hot!
Hoffman’s Super Hot Pepper (Illinois)
This cheese is a family favorite at Mindy’s (our Sales & Marketing Director) house! It goes on burgers, sandwiches, crackers, or just straight. Once you go super hot, it is hard to go back down the scale!
Laack Lightening Pepper Marble Jack (Wisconsin)
A step below the super hot, this combination of Colby and Monterey Jack with a hot pepper kick will certainly delight most spicy cheese lovers.
Shullsburg Creamery Smoked Habanero Farmers (Wisconsin)
Although the label still says, Caution Hot!, this cheese is fairly mild on the spice side compared to the others listed above. If you like a hint of smokey flavor, this may be just what you are looking for!
Laack Chipotle Monterey Jack (Wisconsin)
Also with a hint of smokiness, this chipotle monterey jack provides just a little bit of heat.
Jalapeño Muenster (Wisconsin)
Our jalapeno muenster is the least spicy pepper cheese that we offer at Kalona Creamery. Believe it or not, jalapeno peppers are towards the bottom of the Scoville scale and the creamy and smooth muenster cheese tones that heat level down even more!
